Went down to Landguard with my mate Eddie Marsh today, after a couple of hours watching from Observatory decide to walk to photograph the Whinchats we had seen. Only out there for a few minutes when stumble across what I thought was a Tree Sparrow, but it turned out to be a Mega rarity a Spanish Sparrow a first for Suffolk and only 7 have been seen since 1950 in Gt Britain!!

After Boyton went to Shingle St, was watching a Wheater when this young Cuckoo popped up on a fence only 15ft  away from me and stayed for over one hour.
